Cosmetic Dental Care
Our cosmetic dental treatments can address damaged, misaligned teeth and misshapen teeth. These problems can eventually lead to more complex dental issues that can compromise long-term oral health. For example, straight teeth are easier to clean, while misaligned teeth are more prone to tooth decay or gum disease. Cosmetic dental procedures can be used effectively to help address oral health as well as aesthetic concerns. Dr. Leatherwood’s advanced dental training and experience serve as a foundation for exceptional care and results.
A popular alternative to metal braces, clear Invisalign aligners comfortably straighten teeth over time. Metal braces can irritate the gums and come with dietary restrictions. They may also come with longer treatment times. With Invisalign, many patients can complete treatment in 12 to 18 months. Clear Invisalign aligners are removable so patients can eat the foods they love and keep their teeth and gums healthy.
Porcelain veneers are shells of porcelain ceramic used to cover the front of damaged or discolored teeth. Veneers are best for patients who want a permanent solution to their cosmetic problems. Compared to dental bonding, porcelain veneers are meant to last for many years and require tooth preparation for the best results. During treatment, we will create the shape, size, and color specifications of your veneers and ensure that they fit precisely and look natural.
Tooth bonding can quickly fix minor cosmetic concerns including chips, cracks, and tooth discoloration. This treatment uses a biocompatible material that is molded and shaped onto teeth and cured. We can color match the bonding material so it can blend in with existing natural teeth. Dental bonding is an economical and efficient treatment for tooth damage and minor cosmetic concerns.
We offer professional teeth whitening treatment in our office. Professional teeth whitening is a quick and effective way to brighten the tooth enamel by multiple shades in just one office visit. During treatment, we apply a whitening solution to the teeth. Then, we use a mouthpiece that uses heat and LED light to cure the solution.
Cosmetic Dental FAQs
Learn answers to commonly asked questions about cosmetic dental care below:
What is cosmetic dentistry?
Cosmetic dentistry improves the look of the teeth and gums by changing the shape, size, color, or alignment of teeth. We often recommend cosmetic dental treatments after patients have undergone restorative or general dental treatments. Dr. Leatherwood and her team ensure that patients have healthy teeth and gums before brightening, straightening, or repairing teeth.
How can I straighten my teeth?
Compared to traditional orthodontics, Invisalign is often a more comfortable treatment to realign crooked teeth. Invisalign uses sets of clear aligners that are switched out every two weeks to shift the teeth into proper alignment. For many patients, Invisalign is a gentler and more comfortable treatment for their mild to moderate orthodontic problems.
Should I try dental veneers or tooth bonding?
Dental bonding and porcelain veneers are similar cosmetic treatments that differ in price and longevity. Porcelain veneers may cost more upfront but often last longer than bonding. However, veneers often require more tooth preparation. Dental bonding is best for minor chips or cracks in the tooth enamel. Tooth bonding is also a more economical option than veneers. During your office consultation, we can help you determine the right treatment for your specific needs.
